Sustainable and Earth Friendly

Encourage patrons to make greener, more sustainable choices this year by choosing digital magazines instead of print. Compared to print magazines, digital magazines are not only more convenient for on-the-go use, but they also leave a much lighter environmental footprint. Additionally, digital magazines allow libraries to skip shipping and delivery times typically needed for print magazines. With instantaneous access upon a new issue’s release, choosing digital can also help your patrons stay up-to-date on the latest news and trends without delay.
